The story of a bank that became a spa

A contemporary take on heritage, architecture, function, renewal and urban aesthetics. Where stories of past secrets melt with innovative contemporary design.

Some of the most challenging architecture projects take shape in the minds of a few game-changers. Such a group invited us to tell the story of the transformation of a century-old bank into a luxury urban spa. We crafted a book, mixing rich iconography and content, offset by refined materials – as beautiful as it is inviting. Welcome to the vault.
